unable to find iptable service

Hi Am trying to check the service of iptables using

/etc/init.d/iptables status

but I am not even getting this file.

[root@macaw etc]# /etc/init.d/iptables status
-bash: /etc/init.d/iptables: No such file or directory
[root@macaw etc]#

I tried to check whether iptables rpm is installed or not, and it is installed on the machine

[root@macaw etc]# rpm -qa | grep iptable
[root@macaw etc]#

Please help me to solve this issue.

I am using RHEL 6 Linux version

Thanks in advance

however i didnt upgrade to RHEL6 yet , but i think you can search for it using :

locate iptables

That's because iptables isn't a daemon. The init scripts are there to install the rules on boot, and clear (and maybe save) the rules when shutting down. Which rules are active can be seen by running iptables -L as root.
